The week ahead

Week beginning 20th March

This week it is unlikely there will be many votes in Parliament, with fairly uncontroversial measures being debated. It's the Second Reading of the Prisons and Courts Bill, and the remaining stages of the Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill and the Pension Schemes Bill. There will also be general debates on fuel poverty, Brexit and international trade, social mobility and Equitable Life, as well as debates in Westminster Hall. Oral questions include Education, Health, PMQs and International Trade.

Kerry's Select Committee meetings include a private session of the EAC to finalise its report on the Sustainable Development Goals, and EFRA sessions on the performance of the Rural Payments Agency plus the final session of its Food Waste inquiry, with EFRA Minister Therese Coffey in the hot seat. She will also be attending a Farming Today breakfast, and two sessions on the circular economy (one relating to international development, the other relating to business opportunities in the UK). There are drop-in events for the Anthony Nolan Trust, Animal Aid, the RSPB, the Born Free Foundation and on HIV services, and Kerry is also meeting with Kellogg's to discuss breakfast clubs, sugar reduction and other issues.

In Bristol, as well as party political meetings/ campaigning, Kerry is meeting with local NHS bosses to discuss STPs, and attending a Bristol Shared Reading event at Junction 3. She also has a meeting to discuss how to expand and improve work experience opportunities for local pupils, which is an initiative being spearheaded by the Mayor.
